While going through my seemingly never-ending task of cleaning out my cupboard, I came across a bag of white chocolate chips. Three actually, so get ready for white chocolate chip recipes!
I was really in the mood for a cookie, but what kind? I instantly thought of making white chocolate macadamia nut cookies (one of my favorites), but I didn’t have any nuts. Finally my little light bulb went off and I made white chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.
I’m typically not a huge fan of white chocolate, but these were great. The oats gave the cookies a nice texture and cut down on the amount of sweetness from the white chocolate. I’m definitely going to add this one to my batch of cookie recipes.
